With backgrounds in fashion and art Sarah Lomax and Rachel Skinner met in the New Bond Street workrooms of the late Frederick Fox. Learning their trade making hats for The Queen, other members of the Royal family and celebrity clients, the couture millinery methods and meticulous attention to detail have inspired and informed their working practices ever since.

After enjoying independent careers in millinery Sarah and Rachel came together in 2013 to create the label Lomax and Skinner.

With a deep knowledge and understanding of their craft they design and create contemporary millinery rich in form and shape, yet thoughtful in design. Outstanding quality and timeless appeal is central, with the profound respect for the traditions of their trade woven through every piece they make.

Our Bespoke Service

We like to ask for a minimum of six weeks for bespoke orders. However if you have left it a little late, or have a last minute occasion needing a hat, please do contact us. We can often work with a shorter lead time.

Millinery Courses

We offer a unique one to one, and private group service, tailoring individual courses around exact requirements and level of experience.

Please take a look at our Courses page for more information.


Lomax and Skinner are proud to be founder members of The British Hat Guild.
